Arsenal are sweating on a knock for Bukayo Saka suffered against Leeds United.

The Daily Mail says Arsenal are hopeful Saka has escaped with just bruising to his knee after being forced off injured against Leeds.

Saka came on as a second-half substitute at Elland Road but was forced off in injury time after taking a painful blow to his right knee in a challenge with Ezgjan Alioski.

The England starlet initially tried to play through the pain but eventually had to be replaced by Ainsley Maitland-Niles.

Arsenal's medical team have been assessing Saka who has been left out of Mikel Arteta's squad for their Europa League tie against Molde in Norway tomorrow.

Arsenal face Wolves on their return to Premier League action on Sunday and though that may also come too soon for Saka though the Gunners are optimistic he will avoid a lengthy lay off.
